I’ve been to a Cubs game before, and while I do enjoy the game, one of my favorite things about visiting this stadium is relaxing on the patio off the upper deck and looking down over Wrigleyville. The bars, shops and streets are bustling with people. I love the energy.
We were lucky enough to go to a promotional game… free Cubs coozies for our beverages!
Sadly, just as the game was about to start, a storm rolled in… and it was a doozy!
This wasn’t a regular old rain storm, by the way. This was a raining sideways, thunder so loud the concessions workers were dropping things kind of storm. We happened to be on our way back from getting a snack when the storm kicked into high gear. Everyone who was in a seat was soaked to the bone. Children around us were crying in their ponchos. Mr. Dish and I huddled in one of the concrete ramps to wait out the storm. We may have occupied the few feet of dry space on the whole upper deck!
We stayed in this spot for a good 15 minutes. People crowded around us, trying to get in on our awesome dry spot. But we stood our ground! Fortunately we had reserves with which to refuel during the storm.
Even after the monsoon let up, it became pretty clear that we were not going to see any baseball that day. We had to leave to get ready for the rehearsal dinner and the field was still a mess.
The game did start after we left (almost 4 hours late!), and the Cubs ended up beating the Diamondbacks 8-1. As for us, we dried off, and got our rehearsal on in preparation for the big day. See you next time, Wrigleyville!
